ceiling. the president insisted he would not negotiate the debt ceiling again. the republican response is to give themselves more time before raising it. the partisan posturing, the positioning, that will yield to partisanning battling anew. >>neil: thank you. now, something that is fascinating. four years ago and again here, they get out of the their cars, the president and the vice president, they wave to the crowd, keep in mind they are feet away from the reviewing stand. they get back in the car. then to the reviewing stand and i am sure there is logic and reason and it has to do with the timing of it all but they are feet away. i could touch them. he will take the rest of the way by car. that is the vice president and the president. they will soon be in the reviewing stand. the former chairman of ubs america, a very, very important influential financial player for the obamas and kitchen cabinet type advisors on all things business community. very good to see you. thank you for coming. >> i have not seen you since election night. good to be on. chuck schumer said today the senate w
holding the debt ceiling hostage. there was a threat implicitly from his speech writers that he would use this platform to again go-against republicans. >> would that not be rather unusual? is this not where he transcends the dogfight and becomes the dignified head of state? >> presidents have used it in the past to further their agendas. keep in mind that we have the state of the union speech, saving his harsher attacks for that speech, talking about his vision for the country for the next four years. >> do you think that that will be determined and preoccupied by domestic events? or do you think he will be looking to secure the legacy with a big gesture movement on middle east peace, for example? >> absolutely, the stereotype of second term presidents is that they will go for middle east peace. this president is no exception. he laid the groundwork for that with mohammed morsi a few weeks ago. every indication from the white house is that they will be trying to work on iran and the crisis brewing there. also the crises in syria and somalia. there are tons of places where they realize th
the debt ceiling? kicking the can down the road once again? this show kicks the can down the road three years later we are together. i think we talked about the debt ceiling three years ago? stuart: we did. what do you think about this gift? what do you think, accountant? tracy: i think the irs is doing a happy dance, they've got big tax collections on it. >> as long as he pays taxes on it, i don't have a problem. >> save me. charles: all i can do is echo you, i just have a big problem with al gore. stuart: thank you very much. tracy: this is why charles and i are still on the show and chris and i are not. stuart: a special anniversary highlight reel is next.
into her three months from now. as well as, the debt ceiling having to be raised yet again. republicans hope this is when they will be able to get the leverage to push spending cuts and entitlement reform. neil: you know, peter, what we look at -- how does that decide? there is a protocol. sitting in and around that i see ron emanuel sitting close to president clinton, how are those seats sold out? >> by protocol and tradition, all former presidents are invited, of course. both president bush, 41 and 43 the client to come. i believe president carter is not attending, but president lyndon is. then, of course -- neil: carter is there. peter: okay. neil: i only saw that because i saw his picture. peter: other seats are given out by the committee. then there are seats that are doled out by congressional offices. about 1500 folks get to sit up there on the big landing on the west front of the capitol. neil: all right. peter, thank you very much. this is all behind the president right now. this will be the one that the president will put on his hands as he is sworn in. it will be the fourth s
was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want. >> you can see the democrats and white house believe they have the argument in their back pocket. they offered once they can call on it again if they are going to concede on any spending cuts. none have been discussed at least in the short term are going to solve the problem. the only way you solve the problem is by structural entitlement reform. you have to change the trajectory. it is not 50 billion from defense spending there. it would have an impact in our capability in context with the military but the only way you get serious and change the trajectory of the debt is to have entitlement reform. >> what does that take? we are europe and finally we have to do something about it? >> i think charles's point this is a president who
on the debt ceiling debate. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they have already racked up. the financial well-being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. >> america has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. americans deserve better, and therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase america's debt limit. senator barack obama, march 16, 2006. >> it is not good for obama. he was also -- he also knew that his vote would not make a difference. >> come on. he said what he said pier do not cover for him. >> people do different things at different times. >> there is a deeply depressing column by david brooks in "the new york times" that says the era of the grand bargain, as he calls it, is over. there was a feeling over the past couple of years that both sides would cut taxes and raise entitlements and get a grand bargain. that seemed to be a lost opportunity. obama seems to be moving away from it, congress may hav
could say. going to wait three more months and fight this fight again on the debt ceiling. between now and then there is lot of work to be done. >> yeah, but obama has a tailwind going into his second term in terms of the economy. just a couple figures to give you some idea. if wash does nothing special to help the economy over the next four years we're probably still going to see 10 million new jobs by the time obama leaves office in 2017. in his first term the economy only created $470,000 jobs. there is good and bad news for obama. the bad news he will not fight a horrible recession when he started out in 2009. the bad news, because the economy will sort of be limping along i don't think he will find a lot of support for some of the economic measures he wants to see, somewhat he might call job stimulating ideas. so the real question for obama in his second term is, what is he going to do new to help really reinvigorate an economy that just kind of is tired right now. i don't think we've heard any new ideas, including today in his speech. that is one of the things i will be looking f
. the vice president put in charge with republicans on the debt ceiling and brought in most recently for these 24 proposals that have been put forward on the gun control. and the vice president brokered that last minute deal being avoided at the end of the year. when you look at the obama presidency and four years from now when this history is going to be written, vice president joe biden is going to fill a roll in that history that is particular to him and larger than any other vice president we have seen before. really reinvented the vice president before that, they did not have all that much to do besides check on the health of the president. but really, the modern era now we've seen this change from administration to administration and clearly vice president joe biden at this point has demonstrated the height of that, the political confident and advisor and foot soldier with house republicans here who have said they have major problems with a lot of the things this administration is laying out. >> tom is live right there front row seat for the swearing in ceremony at the capitol.
if it wants to control the senate again and move beyond the house. the movement they've had on the debt ceiling, democrats would call it gimmicky on some level. but we want to choose our fight difficultly. they want to push the president to deal with the spending problem this government has. you know what? all the polling reflects the fact that they're right. americans want a better economy. they want compromise. they want to cut government spending. so republicans are on the right track there. the question is how do they find a way to pressure the president in a way that's different tanhan what they've done. >> eugene? >> i think the question is whether the republican establishment, such as it is can bring along the rest of the republican party, the tea party wing of the party, to this -- it's not an accommodationist stance because they don't believe a lot of the same things the president does but it's a recognition that number one, president obama and the democrats won the election. number two, that just rejecting everything wasn't working too well for them. it's
of extension of the debt ceiling. >> and to hold their own pay hostage. we won't pay ourselves. >> even though i think the debt plays better outside and holds more leverage outside the beltway. that's a very positive start, but, again, the president has so far ostensibly been willing to go along with some entitlement cuts, delayed eligibility age, social security diet cola as we call it, and never had to formally walk up to the table on that and it's going to be -- >> let me jump in because i want to get to what i see as one -- not that my opinion particularly matters here. one of the critical imperatives of this second term is to enhance prosperity and economic growth. right now there are more people in poverty than there were four years ago. there are about 12 million more people receiving food stamps than four years ago. growth is back. it was down in the first quarter of his term. it is up now, but it's not fast. what does the president need to do, what can he do to get the economy growing? >> well, look, in the near term what he needs to do, and i'm not sure politically -- forget about th
